Afghanistan: At Least 15 Dead in ISIS, Taliban Attacks

HeadlineMay 10, 2018

In Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, ISIS and Taliban fighters are claiming responsibility for a pair of suicide attacks Wednesday that killed at least seven people and wounded 17 others. The near-simultaneous attacks appeared to target an Afghan intelligence agency near an Asian Development Bank office, as well as a police headquarters. Meanwhile, in western Afghanistan, Taliban gunmen overran a police station Wednesday, killing eight officers. That assault came as a nearby airstrike killed six police officers, in an attack that local officials blamed on the U.S.-led coalition. In a statement, a Pentagon spokesperson questioned whether the dead were in fact police, and promised an investigation.
